S.T.E.A.M and Floral Design? YES!!!
The Coleman Sisters, Kit & Casey, (AKA: Kit Wertz and Casey Schwartz of Flower Duet) will be your Living Art Camp Guides this summer in an exclusive 1-week only kid-friendly excursion into the life of a working floral designer!
This camp fits right into many S.T.E.A.M curriculums, too! As small business owners and designers of flowers for luxury clients like Chanel, BMW, and Lexus, we use science to keep our flowers fresh and last a long time in the vase. We need technology to run our business and work as our own IT experts with our marketing website and accounting programs. We engineer new structures for clients every week with saws, drills, and muscle. Making pretty art with flowers at a profit is not possible without strong math skills. We use math every day when placing orders for fresh flowers and plants and making sure we have enough supplies to see us through each client’s order. The skills of S.T.E.A.M. are essential for us and we’ll pass on those skills to your kids during our Living Art Camp!
